Dr. Pepper.  There's some dumb guy riding a Jet Ski in a living room.  It's just beyond stupid.

Re: Time for a new "worst commercial on TV" thead?

I do not like the one advertising a medicine for people who have heart disease and they sing the song from Annie, tomorrow is only a day away. It is not hopeful, just depressing and a reminder of time and heart disease, the message is clear, you may not have a tomorrow and no one needs to be reminded of that. It is sad and I so dislike the song now.

Spurt (again):  Oh, wait.  That's the one where the child is racing in his mini whatever along side of his parent who's racing down the street in a car.  Then both of them take a fast left onto their driveway.  OMGosh.............I can't imagine what would happen if a child copies doing what is done in this commercial.

Yep, that's the commercial.............and its bad enough because a while back I saw on the news a similar incident, before this commercial even aired, it involved a bicycle instead of a big wheel, parents didnt see the child on the bicycle (in their blind spot) and the child was killed ..........so sad, so tragic............and then I saw this commercial---the car company is irresponsible for sure giving the kids an idea to recklessly race with a car...........

I don't like any of the ones already mentioned either but the one that gets me grabbing the remote the fastest is that awful Volvo commercial with the absent man with that creepy monotone voice droning on and on about the car , I guess.   I wouldn't drive a Volvo now if they gave it to me.

I dislike the Booking.com commercial where the Kindergardan teacher is thinking about her vacation, while the students are wreaking havoc in that classroom.

I dislike that one, too.

 

 

The kids in that commercial are bratty little heathens!

Re: Time for a new "worst commercial on TV" thead?

all commericals are awful. some are so stupid the advertizers must think we are a bunch of morons.

i usually tune them out or go do something when a commerical comes on.

 

if i record my favorite show, i can fast forward thru those pesky commericals.
